  • And you now how many kids die from cancer every single year? Or how many are killed by their parents even?

  • Sorry, but those numbers are speculation they are not testing and keeping tally on which ones are in fact swine flu and which are seasonal. The reason they are categorizing them within swine flu is because they are getting sick outside of the normal flu "season" which is from November to March.

  • The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) based on the 122 Cities Report has increased and has been higher than what is expected at this time of year for two weeks. In addition, 11 flu-related pediatric deaths were reported this week; 9 of these deaths were confirmed 2009 H1N1, and two were influenza A viruses, but were not subtyped. Since April 2009, CDC has received reports of 95 laboratory-confirmed pediatric 2009 H1N1 deaths and another 7 pediatric deaths that were laboratory confirmed as influenza, but where the flu virus subtype was not determined.

  • Anon are you serious? You think swine flu has killed more kids than cancer? You must be stupid.

  • If you've been diagnosed "probable" or "presumed" 2009 H1N1 or "swine flu" in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn’t have H1N1 flu.

    In fact, you probably didn’t have flu at all. That's according to state-by-state test results obtained in a three-month-long CBS News investigation.
